Arcadia Ewell recently earned the title of Miss Boston and is competing for Miss Massachusetts in July.

Arcadia is a first-generation high school graduate who is now pursuing a PhD in Developmental Psychology. She’s a published children's book author and playwright and a successful content creator. She shares resources for students applying to higher education and provides realistic depictions of life as a graduate student with her social media followers. As a stalking survivor, she advocates for Dating and Domestic Violence awareness and prevention.

I am excited to have Arcadia with us today to help us aunts navigate some of these topics with our nieces and nephews and learn from her experiences.
